Crooked nose after rhinoplasty

One of the most common complaints after rhinoplasty that I receive from my revision rhinoplasty patients is that they still have a crooked nose or their nose is now crooked after rhinoplasty. Fixing a crooked nose with revision rhinoplasty can be quite difficult. An assessment of why the nose is crooked is essential. Whether the nasal bones are crooked or the cartilage lost some correction after nasal surgery must be evaluated.

Fixing a crooked nose can be quite difficult as cartilage has memory and wants to move back towards its original position. Fixing a crooked nose after rhinoplasty is even more difficult as the cartilage is now surrounded by scar tissue and weaker making manipulation and shape changing quite challenging.

When seeking revision rhinoplasty for a crooked nose, it is essential to obtain consultation from a well-trained and well-experienced professional who has performed many rhinoplasties.
